Our Garden

The really cold weather is upon us. Most of the plants seem to be doing quite well and the water butts (we have an extra one this year) are filling up. One is full and the other is halfway there. Inside, some plants are doing better than others but there should be enough for us to have some geraniums come the summer. Inside, the hyacinths and daffs are coming into bloom. They will go in the garden after we have enjoyed them and the soil isn't rock hard! Many of the bulbs outside are also making a show and we are looking forward to seeing how they do. Time to sow some seeds ready for the hanging baskets, pots, etc. If we have any spare plants, we'll send them along to the coffee morning in April.

If we are around in the garden, join us for a cup of tea. We love to be disturbed.

The garden around the church has been registered with the Quiet Garden Movement.
It is available for use by the local community for quiet reflection throughout the year but we would ask that you respect the privacy of our neighbours.

To find out more about Quiet Gardens, visit the Quiet Garden website at www.quietgarden.org
If you would like Rev. Jean Andrews to lead you through a Quiet Hour, which is the equivalent of Christian Mindfulness, Morning or Day then please contact her using the contact details above. However, the garden is not really in use for this at the moment.

Crandall Students

Our new batch of students arrived on the 11th January. They are with us for approximately 3 months. There are ten of them this year, all female. We hope that they have a good stay with us and enjoy being in the UK.

FOOD DONATIONS

The Church is one of the the local 'drop off & collection points' for the North Oxfordshire Community Foodbank. Donations of store cupboard food (with a 6-month use by date) are welcomed for distribution to families in need within our area. Please do not leave food bags outside the side door as it can be very difficult to exit the church in an emergency if they are blocking the door. Please leave at the side of the door. For further information contact the Missioner.

Please note that all five Charlbury Churches contribute but donations can be received from anyone.

CHURCH FACILITIES

If you would like to hire any of our facilities we should be pleased to hear from you. The Church is suitable for larger groups (chairs rather than pews) and there is a bright room at the side overlooking the garden that would be suitable for smaller groups. There are excellent kitchen and toilet facilities. There is disabled access to the building. Please contact the Church Secretary.

We do hope you will be in touch and look forward to meeting you.
